My Natural Everyday Makeup Routine

Your daily makeup routine should accomplish three things:

  1. It should not make you late.
  2. It should not break the bank.
  3. It should make you feel beautiful.

To accomplish number one I keep my daily routine down to 4 products which include foundation, eyeliner, mascara and a lip product.  You may be saying, “But, Sash, in your video you used blush and inner corner highlight.”  Well, to be perfectly honest, most days I just say, “Screw it.”  Unless I am looking particularly sickeningly white in the middle of winter, blush usually gets thrown out the window.  The inner corner highlight is for days when I need an extra spring in my step.  So overall the 4 product system allows me to look presentable but also gives me time for more important things like sleep.

From the time I was a fashion loving tween I was scouring the sale aisles.  Being smart with money was something I was taught from a young age and, frankly, going on the quest for a quality item that is also affordable is fun.  All the items in this video are drugstore:

  • Foundation: Revlon Colorstay 180 Sand Beige
  • Eyeliner: Femme Couture Baked Cake Eyeliner (Sally Beauty)
  • Mascara: Covergirl LashBlast in black
  • Eye shadow: Loreal Frosted Icing 901
  • Blush: elf in flushed
  • Lips: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Watermelon

Finally, the makeup you do everyday should make you feel your best.  For me that means covering up the blue veins underneath my eyes,  making my lashes look extra long and ensuring my lips aren’t cracking.  Super simple and natural make up makes me feel beautiful, but for other women having a bright lip makes them feel they can stand out in a room or having smoldering eye makeup makes them feel sexy.  I say find a makeup routine that makes you feel awesome about yourself and spend the few extra minutes in the morning on it.  Having that little extra boost of confidence can really make a difference on how you feel about yourself all day long.

    verry pretty !

  2. I like those rules at the beginning, since they are simple, but really make a point. That really IS what we should all be looking for in a daily routine. Who needs more stress?

    if you prefer a more animal friendly cosmetics line try too faced. it’s sold at sephora, vegan and non-comedogenic. it is more pricey than revlon and covergirl (I used to use both), however I never need to reapply throughout the day and they are very concentrated so a little goes a long way. Because of that I would defintely say pricing is similair in the long run. personally the lash injection mascara and absolutely flawless concealer are amazing and my favorites.

    Hi Ash, I have circles under my eyes that I’d like to cover – but when I tried concealer it made me look way older than 24 by highlighting lines. Any tips to cover undereye circles but avoid the crepey look? Thanks!

      Hi! I’m actually Sash :) I use revlon colorstay foundation under my eyes– that may not be enough coverage but you can do a couple layers and I find that that foundation doesn’t settle in my creases and looks very smooth. Hope that helps!

        Thanks! I will try this for sure. Maybe the problem is using concealer instead of foundation. :)

  5. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a
    lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or
    anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
